He is free.

Or is he?

He’s enslaved by the words of a man.

Spoken 400 years ago.

He is free.

Or is he?

His mind held captive by the chains of poverty.

And he succumbs to lack.

He is free.

Or is he?

He visits his child once or even maybe twice a year.

As he takes care of another woman’s child.

He is free.

Or is he?

He can’t take the pressure that comes along with his skin.

So he escapes to get a fix.

He is free.

Or is he?

He looks in the mirror.

He sees a man bound by chains.

Not realizing it’s him.
